How to format your references using the Austrian Studies citation style

This is a short guide how to format citations and the bibliography in a manuscript for Austrian Studies. For a complete guide how to prepare your manuscript refer to the journal's instructions to authors.

Using reference management software

Typically you don't format your citations and bibliography by hand. The easiest way is to use a reference manager:

PaperpileThe citation style is built in and you can choose it in Settings > Citation Style or Paperpile > Citation Style in Google Docs.
EndNoteFind the style here: output styles overview
Mendeley, Zotero, Papers, and othersThe style is either built in or you can download a CSL file that is supported by most references management programs.
BibTeXBibTeX syles are usually part of a LaTeX template. Check the instructions to authors if the publisher offers a LaTeX template for this journal.

Journal articles

Those examples are references to articles in scholarly journals and how they are supposed to appear in your bibliography.

Not all journals organize their published articles in volumes and issues, so these fields are optional. Some electronic journals do not provide a page range, but instead list an article identifier. In a case like this it's safe to use the article identifier instead of the page range.

A journal article with 1 author
Di Lorenzo, Emanuele, ‘Climate Science: The Future of Coastal Ocean Upwelling’, Nature, 518.7539 (2015), 310–11
A journal article with 2 authors
Coffelt, Seth B., and Karin E. de Visser, ‘Cancer: Inflammation Lights the Way to Metastasis’, Nature, 507.7490 (2014), 48–49
A journal article with 3 authors
Matsuo, Naoki, Leon Reijmers, and Mark Mayford, ‘Spine-Type-Specific Recruitment of Newly Synthesized AMPA Receptors with Learning’, Science (New York, N.Y.), 319.5866 (2008), 1104–7
A journal article with 7 or more authors
de Bono, Mario, David M. Tobin, M. Wayne Davis, Leon Avery, and Cornelia I. Bargmann, ‘Social Feeding in Caenorhabditis Elegans Is Induced by Neurons That Detect Aversive Stimuli’, Nature, 419.6910 (2002), 899–903

Books and book chapters

Here are examples of references for authored and edited books as well as book chapters.

An authored book
Morsali, Ali, and Lida Hashemi, Main Group Metal Coordination Polymers (Hoboken, NJ: John Wiley & Sons, Inc., 2017)
An edited book
Prat, Josep, ed., Next-Generation FTTH Passive Optical Networks: Research Towards Unlimited Bandwidth Access (Dordrecht: Springer Netherlands, 2008)
A chapter in an edited book
Lau, Chiyan, ‘Cytogenetics: Applications’, in Molecular Pathology in Cancer Research, ed. by Sunil R. Lakhani and Stephen B. Fox (New York, NY: Springer, 2016), pp. 67–82

Web sites

Sometimes references to web sites should appear directly in the text rather than in the bibliography. Refer to the Instructions to authors for Austrian Studies.

Blog post
Fang, Janet, ‘Sea Level Rise Is Accelerating Globally’, IFLScience (IFLScience, 2015) <https://www.iflscience.com/environment/sea-level-rise-hasnt-slowed-its-accelerating-globally/&#62; [accessed 30 October 2018]

Reports

This example shows the general structure used for government reports, technical reports, and scientific reports. If you can't locate the report number then it might be better to cite the report as a book. For reports it is usually not individual people that are credited as authors, but a governmental department or agency like "U. S. Food and Drug Administration" or "National Cancer Institute".

Government report
Government Accountability Office, ADP Modernization: IRS Needs to Assess Design Alternatives for Its Electronic Filing System (Washington, DC: U.S. Government Printing Office, 5 May 1989)

Theses and dissertations

Theses including Ph.D. dissertations, Master's theses or Bachelor theses follow the basic format outlined below.

Doctoral dissertation
Cook, Ann Elizabeth, ‘Gas Hydrate-Filled Fracture Reservoirs on Continental Margins’ (unpublished Doctoral dissertation, Columbia University, 2010)

News paper articles

Unlike scholarly journals, news papers do not usually have a volume and issue number. Instead, the full date and page number is required for a correct reference.

New York Times article
Gorman, James, ‘Sciencetake: Misguided Leaders Don’t Lead Pigeons Off Course’, New York Times, 27 September 2016, p. D2

In-text citations

References should be cited in the text by name and year in parentheses:

This sentence cites one reference Emanuele Di Lorenzo, ‘Climate Science: The Future of Coastal Ocean Upwelling’, Nature, 518.7539 (2015), 310–11 <https://doi.org/10.1038/518310a>..
This sentence cites two references Emanuele Di Lorenzo, ‘Climate Science: The Future of Coastal Ocean Upwelling’, Nature, 518.7539 (2015), 310–11 <https://doi.org/10.1038/518310a>; Seth B. Coffelt and Karin E. de Visser, ‘Cancer: Inflammation Lights the Way to Metastasis’, Nature, 507.7490 (2014), 48–49 <https://doi.org/10.1038/nature13062>..

Here are examples of in-text citations with multiple authors:

  • Two authors:
  • Three authors:
  • 4 or more authors: Mario de Bono and others, ‘Social Feeding in Caenorhabditis Elegans Is Induced by Neurons That Detect Aversive Stimuli’, Nature, 419.6910 (2002), 899–903.
